Past Gradutation Events
MTSU’s spring 2021 commencement, a three-day, 10-ceremony weekend event, was the first in Murphy Center for nearly a year in the wake of the pandemic.
The university conducted virtual commencements in spring and summer 2020, then held the fall 2020 graduation outdoors in Floyd Stadium on a surprisingly perfect late November day.
Each ceremony also will be streamed live online at https://www.mtsu.edu/live, https://facebook.com/mtsubluer
